2cupsgluten free oat flourFor the paleo option, use 1 cup coconut flour
Line a large baking dish with greased paper and set aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, granulated sweetener, cinnamon and mix well.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the nut butter and liquid sweetener and heat until melted. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well. Add the banana and mix until combined- The batter should be crumbly. Stir through nuts if desired.
Using a spoon, add the dairy free milk of choice one spoonful at a time until a thick, firm batter is formed.
Transfer to lined baking dish and press firmly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
* I omitted the sweetener as my vegan protein powder was sweetened ** Depending on the flour/protein powder combination, you may need more or less. I used up to 3/4 cup with the paleo version. If your batter is too thin (depending on size of banana) add a dash more coconut flour until firmer.
